Why Do I Need a College Admissions Prep Course?

There’s a lot at stake in the college admissions process! You take SAT, ACT, AP and other college admissions test preparation seriously to improve your scores, right? Well, understanding and being prepared for the entire college admissions process will definitely net you better results. You’ll end up in a school where you can truly thrive with the best possible financial situation.

What about my school counselor?

As the most trusted resource for students and parents, your high school guidance counselor is central in the college admissions process. Guidance counselors see you in a different light than your parents or friends, and they are best positioned to steer you in the right direction. However, the average student counselor ratio in the US is 400:1 and a counselor’s time and attention is often divided with other, equally important counseling responsibilities.

On average, counselors are able to spend 40 minutes per student on college counseling over 4 years. Whether you have the opportunity to spend a lot of time or just a little discussing your college options with your counselor, our video courses and course materials will make you much better prepared for these meetings and allow you and your counselor to spend more time discussing your specific needs and college goals.
